The lovely Anna Friel has joined the cast of the thriller The Dark Fields says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the book by Alan Glynn the story follows an unsuccessful writer (Bradley Cooper) who gets hold of a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that increases intelligence.He soon achieves the elusive success he was after, but the drug has lethal and lasting side effects while people begin pursuing him--Among them Robert De Niro as a brilliant financial mogul.
Friel will play Cooper's ex-wife Melissa.
Leslie Dixon adapted the script from which Neil Burger (The Illusionist) is directing the pic.
Elizabeth Banks also stars.
Scott Kroopf and Ryan Kavanaugh will produce the pic.
The film will start shooting this May in my backyard of Philadelphia!
